Succulents update

14 Apr 2012
Cloudy 26°C / 79°F

I successfully overwintered all of my potted succulents in the purple shed, but wasn’t too happy with the look of some of them so dumped one pot in the compost pile and replaced the contents with fresh cactus potting soil and a few small succulent plants purchased from Lowes.




Well, overwintered or new to the garden, everyone looks very handsome out in the sun!

Thanks! I’m new to succulents. Our Realtor gave us this plant stand as a closing gift, and I didn’t want to have to water the pots in the stand very often so I decided to give succulents a try last year. I’m really pleased to see how the over-wintered plants on the left have done, and I’m optimistic that the new plants on the right will also do well. I enjoy their compact growth forms.
